About the Book

"Ja, ich weiss woher ich stamme " Thus Friedrich Nietzsche began his autobiographical poem, Ecce Homo. "I know from whence I come." Philosophers and poets have been wrestling with questions of our origins, and our ultimate goals, since the days of Thales and Sappho. Call Me Rumpelstiltskin is a refreshing continuation of the process of intellectual discovery begun long ago in Ionia. In these verses, a philosophy teacher uses poetry as a didactic device to gain the attention of students, and of all who have ever looked up and wondered why we are here and where we are going.
